2011-05-02kconfig: Avoid buffer underrun in choice inputBen Hutchings
commit 3ba41621156681afcdbcd624e3191cbc65eb94f4 upstream. Commit 40aee729b350 ('kconfig: fix default value for choice input') fixed some cases where kconfig would select the wrong option from a choice with a single valid option and thus enter an infinite loop. However, this broke the test for user input of the form 'N?', because when kconfig selects the single valid option the input is zero-length and the test will read the byte before the input buffer. If this happens to contain '?' (as it will in a mips build on Debian unstable today) then kconfig again enters an infinite loop.

2011-04-21kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) rightAlexey Dobriyan
commit 33ee3b2e2eb9b4b6c64dcf9ed66e2ac3124e748c upstream. 1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty, libc way to indicate failure. 2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and comments pretend they do. 3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants, but users want strtou8() 4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong: Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist because conversion should be strict by default. The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types. Enter kstrtoull() kstrtoll() kstrtoul() kstrtol() kstrtouint() kstrtoint() kstrtou64() kstrtos64() kstrtou32() kstrtos32() kstrtou16() kstrtos16() kstrtou8() kstrtos8() Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well. strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and eventually will be removed altogether. Use kstrto*() in code today! Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution, because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and __alignof__ at least always works.

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2011-01-13decompressors: add XZ decompressor moduleLasse Collin
In userspace, the .lzma format has become mostly a legacy file format that got superseded by the .xz format. Similarly, LZMA Utils was superseded by XZ Utils. These patches add support for XZ decompression into the kernel. Most of the code is as is from XZ Embedded <http://tukaani.org/xz/embedded.html>. It was written for the Linux kernel but is usable in other projects too. Advantages of XZ over the current LZMA code in the kernel: - Nice API that can be used by other kernel modules; it's not limited to kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. - Integrity check support (CRC32) - BCJ filters improve compression of executable code on certain architectures. These together with LZMA2 can produce a few percent smaller kernel or Squashfs images than plain LZMA without making the decompression slower. This patch: Add the main decompression code (xz_dec), testing module (xz_dec_test), wrapper script (xz_wrap.sh) for the xz command line tool, and documentation. The xz_dec module is enough to have a usable XZ decompressor e.g. for Squashfs. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2010-12-28modpost: Fix address calculation in reloc_location()Olof Johansson
This patch fixes a segfault in modpost that is observed when the gold linker is used to link the input objects. The problem is that reloc_location (modpost.c) is computing the address of the relocation target incorrectly. Here, elf->hdr points to the beginning of the ELF file in memory, sechdr points to the relocation section header, section is the index of the section being relocated, and sechdrs[section].sh_offset would be the offset of that section, relative to the beginning of the ELF file. Adding elf->hdr + sechdrs[section].sh_offset gives you the address of the beginning of the section, and adding r->r_offset to that gives you the address of the location to be relocated. You do not need to subtract sechdrs[section].sh_addr from that -- the result of this is an address outside the file, and causes the segfault when addend_386_rel tries to dereference it. This bug is not observed when GNU ld is used to link the inputs. The object file ubuntu/omnibook/omnibook.o is the result of an ld -r of several other files. When GNU ld does an ld -r, it sets the vaddr field for each section to 0, but gold lays out the section addresses sequentially instead: Section Headers: [Nr] Name Type Addr Off Size ES Flg Lk Inf Al [ 0] NULL 00000000 000000 000000 00 0 0 0 [ 1] .text PROGBITS 00000000 000034 004794 00 AX 0 0 4 [ 2] .data PROGBITS 0000b9d0 0047c8 0009c0 00 WA 0 0 4 [ 3] .bss NOBITS 000162f8 005188 00013c 00 WA 0 0 4 [ 4] .rodata.str1.1 PROGBITS 00004f2d 0052c4 001b1a 01 AMS 0 0 1 [ 5] .init.text PROGBITS 00004794 006dde 0005fa 00 AX 0 0 1 [ 6] .exit.text PROGBITS 00004d8e 0073d8 00018a 00 AX 0 0 1 ...

2010-12-23of: Add support for linking device tree blobs into vmlinuxDirk Brandewie
This patch adds support for linking device tree blob(s) into vmlinux. Modifies asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h to add linking .dtb sections into vmlinux. To maintain compatiblity with the of/fdt driver code platforms MUST copy the blob to a non-init memory location before the kernel frees the .init.* sections in the image. Modifies scripts/Makefile.lib to add a kbuild command to compile DTS files to device tree blobs and a rule to create objects to wrap the blobs for linking. STRUCT_ALIGNMENT is defined in vmlinux.lds.h for use in the rule to create wrapper objects for the dtb in Makefile.lib. The STRUCT_ALIGN() macro in vmlinux.lds.h is modified to use the STRUCT_ALIGNMENT definition. The DTB's are placed on 32 byte boundries to allow parsing the blob with driver/of/fdt.c during early boot without having to copy the blob to get the structure alignment GCC expects. A DTB is linked in by adding the DTB object to the list of objects to be linked into vmlinux in the archtecture specific Makefile using obj-y += foo.dtb.o Signed-off-by: Dirk Brandewie <dirk.brandewie@gmail.com> Acked-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz> [grant.likely@secretlab.ca: cleaned up whitespace inconsistencies] Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>

2010-12-21kconfig: simplify select-with-unmet-direct-dependency warningArnaud Lacombe
This is an attempt to simplify the expressing printed by kconfig when a symbol is selected but still has direct unmet dependency. First, the symbol reverse dependency is split in sub-expression. Then, each sub-expression is checked to ensure that it does not contains the unmet dependency. This removes the false-positive symbols and fixed symbol which already have the correct dependency. Finally, only the symbol responsible of the "select" is printed, instead of its full dependency tree.

2010-12-20kbuild, deb-pkg: support overriding userland architectureAsbjoern Sloth Toennesen
Usefull if building for sparc64 userland, because the sparc and sparc64 userlands use the same 64-bit kernel, making it impossible to always select the correct userland architecture for the resulting debian package. Might also be usefull, if you want a i386 userland with a amd64 kernel.

2010-12-20checksyscalls: Fix stand-alone usageGeert Uytterhoeven
The usage help in the comments - refers to the wrong script name, - doesn't mention that $srctree must be set. Hence correct the script name, and derive the source tree path from the script path, so we no longer need to rely on $srctree being set by the caller.
